Introduction

Mathematically speaking, automated employee scheduling of large numbers of employees, is known to be extremely complicated. As a result, automated solutions are available only for small numbers of employees, typically 10 - 40 employees.

Using a ground-breaking technology developed by our team, Sched4u® can automatically schedule 200-2400 employees including constraints in 1-70 seconds. Sched4u is faster than existing products by a factor of about 10,000 even for 50-60 employees.

Large organizations worldwide; security forces, hospitals, hotels are just a few which can now create schedules using Sched4u quickly and automatically.

Advantages of Sched4u®

The best way to compare automatic scheduling software is when scheduling a group of employees all having a single role. Sched4u can easily schedule thousands of employees within seconds.

Examples:
1. Scheduling a single role group of 1850 employees using Sched4u; amount of time is about 60 seconds.
2. Scheduling 2400 employees (1850 having a single role and the rest having 5 roles) using Sched4u; about 70 seconds.

Other existing automatic solutions, for a single role, struggle when scheduling 10-60 employees, with time rising exponentially when increasing the number of employees. These solutions are at least 10,000 times slower than Sched4u for groups of employees larger than 60.

Value

Existing scheduling tools used by both medium and large organizations are primarily slow manual tools. About 5% of existing tools are automatic, useful only for scheduling small groups of employees.

By contrast Sched4u schedules thousands of employees within seconds. Sched4u saves money and time while achieving high quality and precision.

Examples:
1. Scheduling 400 policemen including constraints using Sched4u takes about 4 seconds.
2. Scheduling 1800 workers in a hotel including constraints takes about 45 seconds.
These tasks cannot be solved by other existing tools.
Sched4u will boost the efficiency of all organizations around the globe; Industrial plants, Police, hotels, airports, call centres are just a few.
